Having previously impressed via confident releases on Drumma, Tough Luck, INFUSE and In Haus Wax, Leeds lad Jack Wickham pitches up on Medeia. The main attraction is undoubtedly A-side "Sidewalk", a deep dive into off-kilter tech-house waters that boasts a canny combination of fluid machine percussion, bobbing chords and deep space electronics. While rolling and hypnotic, there's enough swing and looseness to the beats to appeal to dancers with flagging energy levels. HO DO RI provides the obligatory remix, delivering a slightly "straighter" trip into dub-influenced tech-house territory, while Wickham bonus cut "Medeia" sits somewhere between the two versions of the headline cut.
